Hello, and welcome my name is Tasha; a Sports Massage Therapist based in Hackenthorpe Village, Sheffield S12.
How it all began:
I started out over 25 years ago as a Fitness Instructor teaching Gym/Aerobics/Step/Circuit. I competed in the ANB British Finals in the Fitness Model category. Then qualified as a PT and worked part-time for many years.
My sporting background is well-founded from my early 20's competing in weight training, cross country. I was a local club runner, enjoyed ice skating, cycling, snowboarding, climbing mountains and much more. Over the last four years, I have competed in Triathlon, from sprint to 70.3 Ironman.
Why I became obsessed with Sports Massage:
Back in 2014 even though I was really fit and healthy I started to suffer badly with Lower Back Pain and Sciatica and after many months of pain, I had to undergo spinal surgery to remove L5/S1 disc that had herniated and that was trapping my nerve and causing the pain; apparently, wear and tear of many years training.
This is when I became obsessed with Sports Massage; ensuring that I recovered completely and was able to return to Triathlon. I had lots of Sports Massage Therapy whilst studying for the L3 qualification and thankfully I am now fully fit and back in training. I still get niggles but Sports Massage Therapy helps to keep them at bay.
I have since qualified as a Level 4 YMCA Sports Massage Therapist and on the more Holistic side of massage, I am qualified to use Hot Stones, whereby I use volcanic rocks imported from Europe; which are so relaxing and fantastic to use.
Training and Qualifications:
I have been studying constantly for over 6 years, completing diplomas, certificates and CPD courses.
Sports Massage for you
Sports Massage is not only for people who enjoy sporting activities but also for those who like to look after their well-being.
Sports Massage is just a term for deeper massage treatment and techniques, used for injury management and rehabilitation.
We all suffer from time to time from aches and pains due to day to day activities, sport and our occupations.
Sports Massage, whether it be soft tissue release or deep tissue massage can help relieve and reduce these, whether caused by sport, injury or the stresses and strains of everyday life.
I have extensive knowledge and experience in health and fitness and committed to helping my clients and can assess sporting injuries, treat them and help with rehabilitation.
